Turkish Renewable Energy-Generating Mosque

Views: 161
When residents of the Turkish village of Büyükeceli
. . . decided to install a set of solar panels to demonstrate how
. . . renewable energy could be a viable alternative to the proposed
. . . nuclear power plant they are fighting,
. . . they first thought to use the green electricity to power a local school.
But when the government refused to give permission,
. . . they found another ally: the village mosque.

A mosque slated to be built in the western city of Bursa will produce
. . . 120 kilowatts of electricity from solar and wind energy. But   just
. . . 50 kW will be consumed by the building, and
. . . selling the rest to the national power grid.
